How the Dinosaur Got
to the Museum


by Jessie Hartland

We loved How the Sphinx Got to the Museum so we were thrilled to find another related title by Jessie Hartland!  This title describes the 145-million-year journey of a dinosaur-- from roaming the landscape of modern-day Utah to its discovery in 1923 to its final home at the famed Smithsonian Museum.

In a starred review, School Library Journal said, "Brilliantly simple and effective, this is an excellent addition to any elementary collection."
